- According to Peter Gammons, the Red Sox will shop Julio Lugo around in order to open up a spot for Jed Lowrie. However, it is possible they would move Lugo and go after a better shortstop, perhaps Rafael Furcal. Gammons also mentions that they could keep Lugo in a super-utility role.
- According to Jon Heyman, Hank Steinbrenner has warmed up to Brian Cashman and plans to offer him an extension. Cashman was rumored to be heading to Seattle or Philadelphia following this season.
- According to Jon Heyman, the Rangers may trade one of their top prospects in order to land a big name starter. If they were able to acquire a number three starter under contract, then go out and make a big splash on the market, they would be in great shape for 2009.
- According to Ken Rosenthal, the Mariners have placed Jarrod Washburn and Raul Ibanez on waivers and both have been claimed. According to sources, the White Sox did not claim Jarrod Washburn, but the team that did is still unknown. It would not surprise me if the Rays claimed Ibanez, mostly because they need an outfielder.
